the way to Dona Paula, 1-km ahead of the confluence of
the Arabian Sea and Mandovi River, under the palm shade,
is "Gasper Dias" or Miramar Beach and is just
3-km away from the capital city of Panjim.
Portuguese language 'Miramar' stand for viewing the sea.
Situated on a good location for evening walks, the coast
is spread upto 2-km, having a fine silvery sand bed.
From here one has an excellent view of the Aguada fort
just across the Mondovi River.
PLACES TO STAY
the village's rapid rise as a package tour resort,
Colva's plentiful accommodation ranges from swish
campuses of chalets and swimming pools to a fair
selection of good value guesthouses in between. Most of
the mid and top of the range places are strung out along
the Main Beach Road or just behind it. Budget rooms lie
amid the more peaceful palm groves and paddy fields
north of here: the quarter known as Ward 4, which is
accessible via the path that winds north from Johnny
Cool's Restaurant, or from the other side via a lane
leading west off the Main Colva-Vasco Road.
